  • Notes 
    • New Hamburg

      On the morning of Saturday, last Mr. Henry Brodrecht, proprietor of the New Hamburg Foundry while driving down main street had the misfortune of a runaway. His handsome horses by some means or other took fright and dashed off at a lively rate, throwing him out of the rig hurting his face badly up the road. Fortunately the horses were stopped before further damage was done...
